Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have! We are a team, and my goal is to work together to provide your child with the best learning experience possible. My preferred method of communication is email, but I am always happy to schedule a phone conference or meeting.
I am available before school (7:00-7:30am), during my conference period (2:00-2:55pm), and after school (3:00-4:00pm). I will always respond to emails and phone calls within 24 hours. If you have changes to your child's transportation routine, please email or call the front office.
